Wait For Me Mama

This song is by Alex Harvey and appears on the album The Mafia Stole My Guitar (1979).

My father can hang the medals on the wall
Fought for the flag and the last bugle call
It hurts when I laugh, Sir
I'm numb with the cold
Make me a hero
Before I grow old

The old cherry pickers
We sharpen our spears
Into the valley and so it appears
The general said so
The one that you know
And I'm telling you darling
And I got to go

Wait for me mama
Please wait for me
I'm going a-hunting to win victory
And maybe tomorrow we'll dampen the dew
The angels of mercy will bring me to you

The tall dripper (?) danced in the old village hall
The citizens laughed at the face on the wall
The living was easy
But dying was tough
So bring in the basket
We can't get enough

Bring in the fruit from the tree in the green
Show them the places that they've never seen
More than a pleasure, better by far
And I'm telling you darling
Wherever you are

Wait for me mama
Please wait for me
I'm going a-hunting to win victory
But maybe tomorrow you'll dampen the dew
The angels of mercy will bring me to you
